Early Valentines Day Nails

I know it’s not valentines day just yet but it was too hard to keep myself away from all the pinks. Couldn’t stop myself from creating a valentines day design when I had all my pink shades around me. Just started to paint my nails with different design with pink incorporated on all the nails. Hearts, dots, slanting stripes and lines all in one manicure. Happy early valentines day everyone. Lets celebrate love

Konad stamping nail art

I just received my Konad White Nail polish for stamping and now i can use my Bundle monster stamping nail plates. I am so excited to try out all the new designs in various styles. I couldn’t wait to use it and in little time i had i just quickly did a simple stamping design. It is a floral white stamp over Essie Wicked. I am in love.

Nail polishes used:
Essie – Wicked
Konad White polish
Bundle monster stamping nail art plates
OPI base coat
Seche Vite fast drying top coat

Vintage Rose

Start off by applying a base coat. Then paint all your nails black. I used Sinful colors “”. Let it dry. Then make big purple dots at equal distance all over your nails. You can either use a dotting tool or a bobby pin for the dots. Once it dries, take a darker purple color nail polish and create 3 swipes, 2 around and one over the purple dot in circular fashion. Then take a green color from your collection and make some leaves around the rose. Lastly let it dry completely and seal it with a top coat. It’s important you let the design dry otherwise it can smudge due to the top coat.

Colors i used.
Base Coat: OPI base coat
Top Coat: Fast drying top coat by Seche Vite
Black: Sinful colors “Black On Black”
Light purple dots: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Extreme wear “Lacey Lilac”
Dark Purple: Finger Paints “Lavender Highlights”
Green: ULTA “Limelight”

Gradient Glitter Green

This is an elegant, easy and a super quick nail art which comes handy when you want a fresh look in little time. For this nail art, start by applying a base coat. Then paint your nails a solid green color. I used a solid green from ULTA. You can use whichever green shade you have handy in your collection. Matte works out the best with this manicure. Let the green dry out completely and then paint the entire nail with holographic silver micro glitter. Next, reapply the same glitter over the top half of your nail. Lastly I used a glitter nail polish with small holographic hexes on the tip of my nails. Seal the look with a fast drying top coat.

Outlined Pearl

This nail art was inspired by the latest M.A.C Cosmetics banner that I caught a glimpse of at the mall. “Outlined Pearl” is a simple manicure with a pearl white base which is then bordered with a black striper. Start by applying a base coat. The paint all your nails a pearl white. I used REVLON’s Pure Pearl (#020). Let it dry. Using a black striper, border your nails from all sides. Finish the look with a top coat. I used the fast drying top coat by Seche Vite. You can also try this nail art with a matte white instead of a pearl white.
